Would You support a Charity Game

****Disclaimer****
I have not booked this game or gone beyond the planning stages other than contacting 1 or 2 venues to get an idea of cost

************************************************** ***************
I had an idea the other night when I was attending a dinner at a friends house and they were talking about a charity paintball game they were going to.

I know the idea is not new or improved but the question is would you attend an event where you would pay an inflated price to support a charity?

I believe that most of us here agree that there are ALOT of good charities out there and they could all use some money. So instead of me or the host picking the set charity I think it would be good that the overall winner of the said event to pick from a pre-determined list of deserving charities as pertains to the airsoft culture.(which would be posed prior to sign up)


After contact a few venues i did a base calculation to run an event would cost for the venue only and no money to the charity $2200-$3000 per day. That is a huge cost to an organizer and it would deeply impact the price for an event. Based on 45 players Or 9x5 man teams it would work out to a cost of $48.88-$66.66/player $244-$333 Team just to cover cost. This would be a sole use of the venue privilege for a saturday or sunday. So would you support it?

I have an idea for an event but don't want to post it up yet or even commit to it until i have more knowledge if there is even a player base willing to pay an inflated price. I also would be drawing from experienced hosts who could guide me better on the execution.
